Any student who is absent from school at the morning or afternoon registration period must have their absence recorded as being authorised, unauthorised, or as an approve educational activity (attendance out of school.) Only the Headteacher or a member of staff acting on their behalf can authorise absence.



Morning registration takes place at 8.35am.  All students are expected to be in form for the start of registration. Lateness before 9am will not count as a statistical absence but will be recorded as Late and will be addressed by the Deputy House Leader. Lateness after 9am will be coded as an unauthorised absence for the morning session unless there is an acceptable reason given.  The afternoon session of attendance will be recorded at the start of the 5th period of the day.
